With the spread of novel COVID-19 variants, it has become very important to identify which variant has infected the patient.
Following the great success of the Menarini SARS-CoV-2 Real Time PCR detection kit, reported by several third party evaluations as one of the most sensitive COVID-19 Real Time PCR assays, Menariin launches CoronaVar, specifically designed to detect and distinguish the UK variant (B.1.1.7 or VOC 202012/01) from wild type and from both South African (B.1.351 or 20H/501YV2) and Brazilian (P.1).
The kit is meant to be used as a reflex test on positive samples and can use the same extracted RNA prepared for a Real Time PCR screening test.
The presence of a wild type control and a RNaseP internal control, avoids the risk of false negative tests due to incorrect tracing of samples or to improper storage of the eluted RNAs.
